property tax base, so housing prices, the strength of our tourism economy as well as job growth. as you might imagine, revenue projections are sensitive to the overall economic condition of the city so to the degree that the pay for the recovery is slower or federal spending cuts are more significant than what we -- than we're factoring in at the moment, those projections could change. overall, the plan assumes more conservative growth rates on revenue in the third, fourth and fifth years of the plan. one to have reasons for that is that we are now going into a pretty -- into a sustained period of economic recovery and over the last number of years, we know that we haven't been able to -- we've seen booms and busts in our economy so we need to be i think responsible in our revenue projections in those third, fourth and fifth years. there's still growth rates assumed but just at a lower level. >> ms. howard, quick question for you, and i appreciate that comment, i think as you look at economic cycles and so forth, you can make an argument that we're going into a shorter economic swing, h
revenues including property transfer taxes above the average of the last five years are deposited into this reserve, so if we have a very, very high year of property transfer tax, you hear the controller tell you year after year that these are volatile, we can't dountbacker count on them continuing, so 75% of that growth would be deposited into the stabilization reserve. withdrawals from the reserve are triggered in similar way as the rainy day reserve but they're spread over a three year horizon, we can withdraw up to one-third for each one of three consecutive years and the policy could be suspended for any given year by a two-thirds vote of the board, so here is the chart that you were looking for, supervisor farrell, in each of the years, we show what the balance is in the stabilization reserve, so you see that in the last three years, we have accumulated approximately 95 million dollars is projected, and then you can also see the rainy day reserve, the amounts that are left, so what is left in the rainy day reserve from the economic stabilization fund is the 23 million, so th
these knuckleheads? orregard to taxing the rich cutting out loopholes, everybody in this country gets some form of entitlement in one shape or form. i don't understand why because i get a paycheck and somebody else makes their money through investments or a different way, why i am taxed more. if you earn money, you get taxed on it the same as everybody else. i do not agree with that at all. and i don't understand why we have to give tax subsidies to corporations that do not need it. why on earth does the oil company need our money? why does the agriculture business need our money? you are making enough money. cut out the tax loopholes and we can get out of this mess. host: we are covering the cpac conference and there are a number of ways you can watch and listen. depending on what the house yesterday, we will be live with the house this morning, once the house recesses, the cpac coverage can be seen on this network. you can also listen on c-span radio and wanted anytime on our website, c-span.org. also be a location to what some of the conferences that get underway this morning. some other com
and utilize growth in those hotel tax revenues to support the general fund. >> thank you. >> you're welcome. so, moving on the next strategy that the plan recommends is to limit our non-personnel inflation growth, so similar to what we were talking about with the hotel tax, the plan recommends that for both non-salary inflationary costs as well as non-profit colas or grant colas to grants, that in the first two years, the city should not fund inflationary increases in either of those categories but that in the subsequent years, modest increases should be provided. and so that's that one. and then this next one is really focused on one-time revenues in savings, so you'll see in the plan that we recommend reducing the reliance on these one-time sources just because it's not rel lie financially prudent to use one-time money to fund your ongoing cost, it's like getting a birthday gift from your grandmother and using it to pay your rent every month, it's not going to be there next month, so it's the more financially responsible thing to do is to use those one-time sources of revenues for one-tim
buffet, a fan of higher taxes on upper income, and government doing more and spending more when he had his druthers he hose to commit whatever money he has, before it goes to you and to you and the foundation and not to u.s. government. >> tells you we have 3 sectors, private sector that biggest. and it phenomenal, anything it could do in terms of the diseases of the rich, the needs of people who can pay it is fantastic, then you have some things like education, justice, where government comes, and helping poor country, philanthropy is only a few percent as big as other sector but they are more willing to take out more far outsidence and new delivery programs there is a commentary rule we're taking your scientists and our expertise, and talks about government programs about what we know and where we have a common view, i'm the biggest fan of philanthropy, because it is almost like the venture capital of societal spending, sometimes you take on things like trying to get teacher to have more feedback and raise average quality, those programs might or might not succeed, this is not the ty
corporate tax reform. even pushing democrats on entitlement reform or so he says. now i know, i know, my favorite president reagan trust by verify, but i think there's some optimism out there and i'm going to do my best now to persuade my pal, conservative superstar ann coulter. she's the author on set for the full hour. jimmy williams. and michelle caruso-cabrera. ann coulter, i know you think i'm nuts but i'm telling you the stock market is a great signal. the republicans won on the sequester. obama's poll are down so now he's having to come to the negotiation table. i like this story. i want to be optimistic about this story. >> um, i want to be optimistic too. but i want to be realist jig. all,000 are the financial maven and i would normally defer to you, that's the only thing i'm pessimistic about. i think the economy -- i would not count on the stock market continuing to go up. i know nothing about it. i just don't think that what's happening in the company justifies it. people don't have any other place to put their money. i do think people will get fed up with obama. one thing i'
tax reform that does not raise revenues but reduces the burdens of our tax code on small businesses and individuals. and regulatory reforms that likewise reduce the ongoing burdens on small businesses, job creation, and those struggling to achieve the economic train. i was encouraged by his answer to both questions. on tax reform in particular, the president ported -- pointed to corporate tax reform. he said he believed there was a lot of agreement between republicans and democrats on corporate tax reform, on broadening the base and lowering the rates so we can be internationally competitive and remaining revenue neutral. all of that was encouraging. those were principles that have wide agreement. if we lower our rates, our country has the highest of any developed country in the world. over a trillion dollars -- over $1 trillion of capital is overseas. we need to bring that back so we can get back to work appeared i was encouraged but his expression of willingness to get that done. on the second issue, on reducing the burden of regulations, job creation, economic growth, he likewise
they are trying to figure out how to cut the tax bill by using prior losses, because guess what, they are profitable today, and that savings would allow them to pay back the treasury over $60 billion and almost what they owe them entirely, and given that i asked former hud secretary martinez if we need to wind down fannie and freddie since they are profitable, and he said we do need to restructure, but something stunning to get the government out of the market, and he said that we need judges out of the foreclosure process. >> i think that the way that the 1,000-day wait for foreclosure is not fair to anybody in the system. i would say that a non-judicial system is the way to go, and the states who have a nonjudicial system have done it much more rapidly and better for the marketplace. so we are helping no one really when we retard the opportunity for a recovery, so in my view, a nonjudicial is the way to go and florida should move in that direction. >> and here in new york and new jersey where judges are a part of the process, it would take decades to get through the backlog of
anything of the sort. bowles-simpson >> balsams and called for tax reform. this budget does nothing of that sort. i cannot see how people simpson is among the reasons why he supports it. >> thank you. there is a similarity in there was a cause for a spending reduction in our tax code, the credits and bypassing collection. senator sanders was referring to the cayman islands earlier. i believe senator levin has talked about $70 billion in net revenue, companies that do not pay a cent in taxes. that type of spending through credits and deductions has grown phenomenally. the powerful in our country, the want their projects to be funded through the tax code, because unlike a preparations, it is not examined every year. that is a very clever strategy and puts them in a very different class and working people who are benefited by programs that are funded every year. it is unacceptable if you come to the core concept of fairness. the actual language in the reconciliation instruction refers to the level of revenues. the explanatory instructions in the back, page 61, talks specifically about
talk about in a bit, spectators are obviously a driver of economic and tax benefits as well. [speaker not understood] from my office is handing out a slide presentation now. i apologize for not having copies sooner. so, as you see at the bottom, it's $4 million here. i want to go to a summary slide now. here's a total budget adding together the three slides you just saw of $22.5 million. i don't have anything to add to that. basically the sum. you'll see cash escrow is zeroed out between the funding to begin with and the credit back of those funds go back to the city. so, this last slide is the break even funding analysis that i talked about earlier. again, it's by no means meant to recast the agreement, but i wanted to give a clearer picture, especially with recent reports and committee outlets about a $20 million hit to the general fund. i think -- i take it very seriously, the idea that the general fund funds a lot of services for people in the city and certainly a special event like this one should ben if youth the general fund and not create shortfalls elsewhere. ~ bene

as republicans. smaller government, lower taxes, less spending, rational regulation, open markets, free trade. these are the things that unite as as republicans. it is no surprise to me, lou, that if you take this 60 million people who voted republican for president last year, they're not going to all agree on everything in it would be silly to think that they would. but, there are things that generally unite us, and we need to learn how to work together and push hard for what we know is right. secondly, to understand and not everybody who is a good person or even a good republican is goin to agree with you on everything. heck, my wife doesn't agree with me and everything. lou: you put it that way. in my house i have to say, have to agree with her. republicans have lost to president ections, as you are keenly aware, governor. the vote totals declining over those two elections last year. the spending, astronomical. the republicans -- fighting many people are not aware, republicans actually out raised anoutspend the democratic party. presidt obama. over $1 billion. now, that is, by mimas, gover

[speaker not understood] i'd like to get into as well. why don't we go ahead with mr. martin. and just before you start, i think -- and i mentioned
taxes. you have probably heard the sequester cuts go after about $44 billion in this fiscal year. let me give you a sense of this. taxes on tobacco and alcohol and gaming, gambling, lotteries, generated together $75 billion compared tough sequester, that taxes are doing a very powerful job. that is, federal, state and and local revenue. two states, two states have legalized the recreational use of marijuana. they are colorado and washington . colorado collects more than $5 million in sales, $5 million in sales from dispensaries, pot dispensaries, marijuana. washington is reportedly collecting some $750,000 in taxes, although they have been having trouble getting dispensaries registered with the state. it is affecting their revenue. pot smokers procrastinating. hard to imagine. well, regarding that $13 billion pornography industry, 13 billion. california is earning about $36 million per year just in revenue from the porn industry. it's worth about a billion dollars overall to the economy, just in southern california. well we are on the subject of sex in addition to the so-called vice taxe
industry takes a hit with higher taxes and more americans quitting is investing too much to risk? we have robert gray off. >> good afternoon. fewer americans are smoking all the 19 percent are smokers and the price of cigarettes have more than doubled. see may not expect to see that over the past decade decade, the big tobacco producers philip morris -- will morris here in the u.s. and others outdistance the s&p 500 when they reinvest the dividends and one statistic to jump out come over the past five decades is a paltry a group take a look returning almost 20% per year. 840,255% thank you to s&p four crunching the data. there are a lot of risks involved their steady dividend payers but bell have fairly large debt loads we know about litigation risk and regulation and we will talk about that the next hour with a face is in california. back to you. melissa: what is business without wings? we have the efforts of expanding the hooters brand spirits this is what a down day looks like. back at the new york stock exchange down 40 points. lori: carnival faces another problem with one of the ship
, workers who don't earn enough to pay taxes even. and so there was a lot of anger that got generated. and i think it also generated a lot of motivation. i know that our people got more mobilized as a result of that video. and i'm sure that others did. and i think that what scott did, and i think his strategy was flawless. i think what he did with no prompting by anybody but him thinking it through, he wanted those that couldn't afford the $50,000 dinner to be able to see the real mitt romney. and the others that got scott upset is that mitt romney was talking about himself being a job creator and then he saw what mitt romney was doing in china buying these factories at bain capital. and he saw that as a complete sort of contradiction of what mitt romney was trying to portray. i think in the sense that mitt romney helped the obama machinery show what romney really was about, i think it was if not a game changer darn near a game changer and i think america owes scott a big debt of thanks. >> well, he is a hero in my opinion and a lot of americans on social media are saying the same thing. it
of the tax revenue needed to overcome our fiscal challenges. president obama has proposed the comprehensive american jobs act to get people trained, get people working and get people contributing to the tax base. mr. speaker -- madam speaker, it's time to bring this bill to the floor. our mantra should be simple -- jobs, jobs, jobs. people are suffering. people are hurting for jobs, jobs, jobs. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady's time has expired. the chair will receive a message. the messenger: madam speaker, a message from the president of the united states. the secretary: madam speaker. the speaker pro tempore: mr. secretary. the secretary: i am directed by the president of the united states to deliver to the house of representatives a message in writing. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from illinois seek recognition? >> i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman is recognized. >> madam speaker, today i speak of the importance of working together to adopt a budget on time in the
, no one read it before it was passed, and there's quite literally a trillion dollars worth of taxes in the affordable care act. it's underappreciated, there's a tax increase on the economy to turn into big job growth impacts and turn into big cost of insurance impacts, and that's what the fee is for, it's there to get the startup of the new exchanges going and to ensure the high cost paicialghts are covered into the insurance products. gerri: what's interesting because there's a lot of people asking for exclusions already, and am i surprised that thedownon representing auto workers doesn't want to pay this. boeing, as i mentioned before, they are asking for exclusions. suspect this is case where virtually anybody with more than say a thousand employees is going to be knocking on the white house doors asking for personal consideration? >> well, of course, you would. this is a cost of doing business, going to be substantial, and unanticipated cost. we saw this with all the regulations that have been put in place to make obamacare go. one by one, they show up and ask for exclusions bec
. they think if we just squeeze squeeze, squeeze, even as we lower taxes at the high end that will create prosperity. that's really a pipe dream. >> john: i'm confused. the president said he doesn't want to touch medicare at all but because of a divided government we might have to do things we don't like. >> no, he said if we want to get revenues they'll bring up topics like the entitlement issues that we will have to discuss. he was not backing away from my view a solid commitment to maintaining it. he said those of us who are supporters of medicare and social security have to focus on maintaining solvency and stability going forward. he said, this was music to our ears. he said social security was not part of the debt issue. it is a totally different issue. to the extent that we get involved. social security at all it has to be about that problem and it's solvent and committed to that 75 year window we've been committed to. as far as medicare, with what wave' done with the affordable care act we're in good shape for the next ten years. but after that even the cbo numbers show with the d
consequence of furloughing state workers and the billions of tax dollars save >> good morning, everyone, 4:50 on abc7 news. a live look from our high definition roof tom camera -- top camera in san francisco, you can see the buildings and not the fog. mike will tell us about the weather including a chance of rain next week. >> you will soon have another option to get around a bay area because of a bicycle sharing program. there is an agreement with a pilot program for bicycle share. you can pick up and drop off bicycles at 70 locations between san francisco and san jose. the cost is still up in the air. a similar program in washington, dc, charges $75 for an annual pass. >> the spring break is leading san francisco's muni system to reduce service while students are out of school part of a strategy they first tried over the holiday season in december when fewer people were using the city buses and trolls and streetcars. this will we reduce the frequency on a dozen routes from march 25 to march 29. they saved $275,000 by reducing routes during the holiday season. >> there is word that twitte
crunched the numbers and under the democrats' plan they would race taxes by $1.5 trillion. they just raised taxes. why would anyone think this budget is a good idea. maybe somebody who does is the former chair of the president's council on american advisors. from the university offing should school of business. uses one of those washington calculators. how are you doing? >> great to see you. i thought you would describe the thank you note you were about to write to the president for cutting government at a faster rate since world war ii. >> 6 trillion in debt. you're using to giving your students quizes and tests, right? >> here we go. >> this is the hannity intellectual contest, and we'll see our good of a political spin artist you are. close friends with barack obama -- >> i'm shocked he wasn't elected pope. here's point number one. this week wore talking about the president talking about balancing the budget, and we'll listen to candidate obama. >> i know where this is going. >> what is important to recognize is that we've already cut $2.7 trillion out of the deficit. if the sequester st
the latest. remember the payroll tax hike and higher taxes on investment income? the financial hit, $317 billion. cadillac tax on high cost insurance plans, another $111 billion for that one. a mandate that employers provide health care or pay a fee, tax on that $106 billion. annual tax on health insurance providers, $102 billion. then there is the individual mandate, $55 billion for that one. we're not done. tax on medical device makers, $29 billion. the list goes on and on. more than 20 new taxes and fees totaling a trillion bucks. that is doubling the estimate just a few years ago. folks, it ain't over. it could send employers over the edge. the real shocker, i talked to a lot of accountants of companies -- they didn't know about this. it's like peeling that onion. >> right. you saw the stack of papers, 20,000 pages of obamacare regulations, it's seven feet, three inches tall, nine inches call of kobe bryant. 66 dollar per person fee. employers are looking at this. it came out this week so it's not something they carefully prepared for. this being more than anything illustrates what t
. we have hot lines reached her tax, some come e-mail. restrict your reporting is something i know is difficult for people to completely understand. i think the truth is we are trying to give people options to come forward. ideally we want people to come forward and make an unrestricted report so we can pursue accountability progressively. but not everyone as we heard this morning is so difficult to come forward. the court should come forward, tries to come forward. until we do and until an individual's designs that are supported by the people around them, the ability to make the restrict report which allows them to get medical care, counseling and victim support without going through the accountability process. it is our hope that with the support they will find the courage to change into an underserved report. >> and time is expired so i will turn now to senator graham. >> thank you. this is an emotional topic so i will be pushing back to some of the things that here but having said that, please do not mistake the pushback for an understanding that sexual thistles in the military
in protecting himself or herself politically vote to raise taxes on those he represents? why? because they get to make more voters angry with them by cutting medicare, because they get their means tested? give me a break. so this odd republican out there is going to both raise taxes and make his somewhat better off voters pay more for health care? no way. we really don't need to get to the liberals, progressives, but just for the sake of candor, why on this god's earth would a good democrat need to cut or i don't get why people are talking about a deal, that no politician out there worried about his or her re-election or renomination would ever want to i can mmake. the truth of what i'm saying will shine through. and the sequester won't seem so bad after all. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "politicsnation" with al sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, chris, and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, shame as it ever was. today, both governor romney and congressman ryan took the stage at the big conservative summit outside of washington. so did they talk about t
on the balance. >> property taxes. >> megyn: that is warning people of a potential property tax hike in the coming election. i don't understand exactly what's happening. the teachers don't like that, but why are the teachers objecting to notifications of property taxes going up. >> they don't want the voters to notice if they've signed up, they voted for a property tax hike and the property taxes are the basis. >> megyn: and they're going to go and vote on various measures that affect them and the one on i raising property taxes is now highlighted on red ink on the outside of the voter envelope. >> and saying we've got more taxes coming at you. >> megyn: and the teachers union says let that go? >> no, let the voters blythely go on and meander through the ballot and the last thing they want is for taxpayers to know that he or she is going to be paying higher taxes in an educational system that isn't too shiny, if i can use the expression. it's pitiful what's happening. >> megyn: because those property taxes will go help fund the teachers salaries and they don't want anybody-- they don
. republicans falsely claim democratic budget increases taxes by $1.5 trillion. as you know the republicans have spent years pressuring democrats to write a budget so they can criticize it and attack it -- so they are assuming the sequestration stays in place which everybody thinks is dumb. so if we're just going to have these fault math arguments i don't know how we're going to get anything done, do you? >> and the false math goes even further, stephanie. their budget wants to reduce the rates on the top wage earners, but they don't tell you how they are going to do it. but in the end it give people who make over a million dollars a decrease in taxes every year. so $200,000 more in tax breaks for the richest -- >> that sounds fair. >> it makes no sense. and then when you ask how they are going to do it? they still protect the tax exemptions for companies who send jobs overseas oil companies, corporate jets -- it's almost too hard to debate something that is this silly. >> stephanie: i know you new there, but do you see any way out of this, that we we -- literally are s
significant cuts to entitlements, something democrats oppose, and democrats want new tax revenue, a deal breaker for republicans. republican leader mitch mcconnell put responsibility back on the president. >> his job is to deliver the members of his party. >> reporter: for now lawmakers appear no closer to a deal but they are more optimistic about the possibility of compromise. today president obama is taking a break from budget talks and traveling to illinois. he'll be focusing on another of his big priorities, alternative energy. richard? >> putting those walking shoes on the side after a very busy couple of days for the president. thank you, danielle. >>> a fiery exchange between dianne feinstein and texas's senator, ted cruz. during a senate judiciary committee on banning assault-style weapons, cruz who opposes any weapons ban, questioned the constitutionality of the bill. a sharp clash resulted between feinstein and the tea party freshman. >> namely, would she consider it constitutional for congress to specify that the first amendment shall apply only to the following books and shal
as they did in the emerging markets, the future tax liability, whatever. they buried in the litigation. melissa: and it is not compelling to you and all that the customers are addicted to their product. >> that is the only compelling thing about them. customers are addicted to starbucks and it does not have the reliability going forward. there are better addiction's out there. melissa: before you keep going, response to that this is the debate we're having all day. >> it's funny. i like him a lot. but the only thing that is holding it up. addiction is addiction. you guys know. walk outside and people are still smoking rather heavily. philip morris is making a lot of money of the cigarettes. the price is high because of taxes, but that is still a big profit center. melissa: okay. so you don't like that. what do you like? >> i do think there has been a problem in the economy where the lower end of the economy has not been able to travel in a gamble. and overbuilding. mgm, las vegas has not come back folia from the recession. more of a direct play on that verses the other stocks that don'
and tax changes to workout that with republicans on the hill. yesterday the president sounded optimistic, take a listen. >> are you making some phrog. >> i think we've had good conversations. >> reporter: the question now moving forward is whether they will come together on some of these issues. the president traveling today in the chicago area going to announce a $2 billion green energy fund. speaker boehner's staff immediately saying look for this to have any credibility the president has to increase oil and gas production in the u.s. and they are specifically citing the keystone pipeline. they are waiting to see whether or not the president is going to approve that, jenna. jenna: we'll be talking to two lawmakers working on the keystone pipeline and some legislation through congress to speed that up. in the meantime, just as far as the republicans, their reaction to these series of meetings, what are they telling you. >> reporter: to summit us they are saying the old ronald reagan line, trust but verify. they see the president having dinner with republican senators a week or so ago. l
